How to fit a Lumma Menstrual Disc
|Squeeze the rim in the middle of the menstrual disc to form an "8" shape, maintaining the string in front of the disc.||Insert the disc into the vaginal canal|| |
Continue pushing the disc toward the end of the canal until you feel that it is positioned under your cervix.
|Push upwards on the front of the rim, securing it behind the pubic bone. Part of the silicone string will remain outside the entrance of the vagina.|
REMOVAL: Pull lightly and slowly with the front of the string until the rim of the disc slips off the pubic bone and lines up with the entrance to the vagina, then pull out gently with your fingers.
How to care for your Lumma Menstrual Disc
While you’re on your period you can remove, rinse and reinsert your disc.
Before its first use and at the end of your period it is recommended you steralise your disc, this can be done by boiling it for 5 minutes.
Between your period we recommend keeping your disc in its storage bag and box to protect it.
